I agree the weathering is a high point of the build. You’ve caught the panels exactly.
all ways appreciate your eye Rob…thank you

I have always liked this rig for some reason or another and you have really done it justice. A little aside if I may. During the summer after high school I along with five other guys my age worked for the City street department. One of the rigs we used was a surplus truck like this one. It was a Mess and was a bear to drive. It was a challenge to see who could drive it the best. None of us could and by summers end the six of us 18 year olds reduced this once proud warrior to a worthless POS. Today the six of us (still around) would do anything we could to restore it to it’s glory.
oh…double clutching…no power nothing…a beast i imagine…thank you

I took a few rides in one of these things in the winter, they are not for the Cadillac crowd…..noisy, cold, drafty, rode “rough as a bus’. Great job on the model, the canvas looks as real as can be.

thank you mike…i’ll bet it beat you up
Bernard E. Hackett, Jr. on April 7, 2015
Bob, like Mike, I had some rides on the later version from late ’67- 69. All I can say is that it beat marching. Is this the Studebaker or the GMC? Only way I can tell is the cab slope, myself.
thank you very much Bernie…it’s the GMC…amen it beats gravel crunching
George Williams on April 7, 2015
Great looking truck, Bob, like the others have said, your finish and weathering really make it look the part.
gentleman George…nice to hear from you and thank you
